Seeing a lot of "Hawks shouldn't have rested players" this morning. What was there to gain with 4 or 5 more reg season wins. Still top seed
Only comment I have left about the ECF is "Go Warriors"
Just when you really need a laugh, the FBI busts FIFA.
I love you FBI. Great timing!
Don't watch as much baseball as I used to, but few things sweeter than a umpire going crazy on a strike three call with the batter looking
Executive Phil Jackson willingness to give up J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert for a future second round pick has helped Cleveland reach Finals
While LeBron James deserves props, give a nod to Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov for making Hawks All-Star frontcourt look pedestrian
"I want to start by congratulating Cleveland and Coach Blatt. They deserved to win." - Coach Bud
I'd like to thank our players & fans for everything this season. We're building something special in Atlanta & the nation is taking notice
I didn't know Dan Gilbert was a hobbit.
Man. Major respect to LeBron James. Five straight NBA Finals appearances. Definitely some of his best playoff work. Legacy continues to grow
I know I didn't respond to everybody that just mentioned -- so thank you all, we'll run it back next year, starting in Vegas Summer League!
Final: Cavs 118, Hawks 88.
For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
Stay classy, Cleveland.
You knew that Perk shot was going down. What a series for the Cavs.
Hawks just didn't have the juice to get past LeBron.
For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
Cavs 103, Hawks 74 with six minutes left.
Guess Blatt figures as long as Baze is in the game, he needs Shump, Mozzy and JR on the floor.
12 minutes left. Fight to the end. http://t.co/FXe3Fd5l6D
Cavs 85, Hawks 60 after three quarters.
Glad Cleveland fans get this moment. It's all I've ever wanted as a Hawks fan. This season tells me it's closer than ever.
Just go ahead and empty the bench. Oh, wait.
That free throw dancing around the rim and falling off: Symbolism.
Hawks are 24 of 101 from 3-point range in the series. Tha'ts 23.8 percent.
Triple double watch for LeBron again - has 19 points, 8 rebounds and seven assists.
Marv reading the Hawks eulogy on air.
Hawks are leading the series in distance traveled backwards while taking jump shots.
For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥
Judging by comments, it's safe to say that getting to the Conference Finals won't dispel the Never Trust the Hawks meme.
Hawks have executed like the world's best surgeons all season. Now they look like they failed med school.
Second half offensive strategy: Take the easiest, quickest three point shot.
The Hawks have led this game for ... 20 seconds.
This playoff series will burn with the core throughout the offseason. This'll burn.
Bright side: Bud has plenty to coach on to make sure the team doesn't rest on 60-win laurels next season.
It's going to be all year and postseason next year, folks.
Not looking great, but we've been down before. http://t.co/cNwgQbqaFd
Remember when the Hawks led 2-0?
Cavs 59, Hawks 42 at the half.
I went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame today. That was fun.
I mean he's only minus 42 points per 100 possessions in net differential for the series.
In case you are wondering, it's still ugly. Cavs 55, Hawks 35 with 3:39 left in second quarter.
The overhead angle showed the elbow to Carroll's ribs that got Mozgov free.
Cavs fans are going to wonder what happened when The Blessed Princes of Oakland put their spell on them and these shots don't fall.
So the small forwards aren't going to be able to check Mozgov. Didn't see that coming.
For Kyle: 🔥 🔥
